Students who experience traditional mathematics teaching rarely realize their own mathematical power. In this session, participants will be provided with an opportunity in which they can exercise that power in determining if an an area on a map qualifies as a food desert, based on their own criteria. In so doing, they can experience what's possible when mathematics can be used as a humanizing tool to analyze, understand, and potentially influence the realities of those who unjustly suffer from food insecurity.
